Hi,

I'm thinking of buying a new, unused, unopened Sony Xperia X Compact from a third-party seller who bought a bunch of them from Sony. The phone was originally released in September 2016. So assuming the worst case scenario and the phone was made in September 2016 and never turned on, should I be concerned about the health/capacity of the battery? It's only been a maximum of 1 year and 5 months, so maybe it won't be a big deal?

Thanks.

Thanks for your response! How long is "a long time" and approximately how much capacity loss could one expect from it? I'm trying to find research online about this, but I cannot.
